You may never have considered playing live casino games before. But if you like the ambience and social atmosphere of a brick-and-mortar casino, but don’t have the time or energy to visit one and much prefer the convenience of online casinos, it’s a no-brainer. The live casino area of your favourite online website or app offers the best of both worlds. 

Using the most up to date and highest quality technology to recreate that authentic casino experience, enjoy the flow of your favourite games, while socialising with the dealer and other players the way you would in a traditional establishment. If you want to play live casino games at PP, for example, but don’t know where to begin, fear not, as we have all you need to know in this handy guide.

Live Roulette

There’s something strangely alluring and satisfying about the Roulette wheel. Listening to the ball clank in the pockets, as the alternating red and black pockets whizz by, before slowing down and grinding to a halt, revealing the location of that small white ball. It’s a game of both tension and excitement. Are you a winner?

Join the live Roulette lobby and choose your favourite table. If you’re looking for something more unusual or less traditional, there are themed games too. Play a football or mythological-related title instead.

Talk to the dealer the way you could in a brick-and-mortar casino, or if this is not available, through the live chat function. And don’t worry if you’re sat in pyjamas or trackies – they can’t see you, although you can see them!

Live Blackjack

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a novice or an expert, Blackjack is popular with casino-goers, due to its ease and low house edge. In live Blackjack, you’ll be playing against a real human being, rather than a computer, so while online Blackjack is great for passing the time, playing against a real person elevates the game. 

You’ll find plenty of games available and if you’re looking for something different, be sure to find the series of tables inspired by far-flung locations around the world. If you’ve always dreamed of visiting Macau, Monte Carlo or Vegas, now’s your opportunity – all from the comfort of your own home. With different tables come different buy-ins and varying limits, so there are plenty of options – just remember to play within your means.

Live Baccarat

Have you ever thought about unleashing your inner James Bond – well, in terms of the casino stakes, that is. Check out the live Baccarat tables and see what all the fuss is about. You’ll find a range of options from the value of the stake you place and the hand you back to the number of camera angles you have to choose from while watching the drama unfold.

If you’re new to Baccarat, perhaps try your luck with the Mini version first; or if you fancy your chances, play progressive jackpot Baccarat. Games are quick and simple and once you’ve backed the player or bank within the 15 second limit, the outcome will be decided.

Live Table Games

Live table games will vary from Poker to Brag, Spin-a-win to Sic-Bo. More often than not, you’ll likely find a niche title that you probably couldn’t expect to find in a brick-and-mortar casino. Like the other games available, you’ll be able to play with varying stakes, whether you want to test the water or are a high-roller. Some games even offer bonus games and side bets to increase the excitement and enhance your experience. If one of the titles interests you, but you’ve never played it before, there will be interactive guides and rules to read. But remember, the dealer is on hand to help you, so speak to them, the way you would a traditional casino croupier.
